If you're a HR and training professional looking for a course that lets you put your new learning into practice right away, our PgDip Human Resource Development and Training Management course is for you.

This work-based learning programme will give you with the skills and knowledge you need for a career in strategic, tactical and operational Human Resource Development (HRD). If you're already working as a manager, you'll learn how to manage HRD within the wider human resources and business context.

You'll graduate with fresh skills, techniques and practices to take on ambitious roles in HR consultancy, HR management, as a training professional, or to seek promotion opportunities. You could also continue your studies.

  • Get a professionally-recognised Level 7 CIPD qualification
  • Study at your own pace for up to four years, with flexibility to fit your studies around your job
  • Gear the course to meet the requirements of your current workplace, so that both you and your employer benefit
  • Learn about the key themes in HRD, including Training, Learning and Talent Development; Consultancy, Coaching and Mentoring; Leadership and Management Skills, and the Training Manager in the Business Context
  • Use our comprehensive online resources, including e-books, databases, journals and study skills resources
  • Be supported by qualified and enthusiastic academic staff, through a combination of face-to-face contact, telephone, email and virtual learning

Work experience and career planning

When you finish the course, our Careers and Employability service can help you find a job that puts your skills to work as an HRD specialist.

After you leave the University, you can get help, advice and support for up to 5 years from our Careers and Employability service as you advance in your career.
